Contrived and implausible, at times absurdly so.

Self-destructs in a ludicrous, ineptly directed anticlimactic rooftop showdown in which bodies pile up, and nothing makes a shred of sense.

Here's a bad movie with hardly a bad scene. How can that be? The construction doesn't flow. The story doesn't engage... Yet here is a gifted cast doing what it's asked to do. The failure is in the writing and editing.

Performances are strong across the board, and the movie offers a solid sense of place. But the mysteries, once explained, don't make a lot of sense.

A few individual performances survive - Liotta finds a little of his old edge, and Pacino briefly revisits Serpico territory - but they're smothered in the slow-burning absurdity.
